Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne has no plans to rest for the playoffs after playing with a torn triceps injury.
The Indianapolis Colts have produced one of the best offenses in the NFL this season, and many would argue that they have the most prolific unit in the NFL.
They rank first in the NFL in total yards and passing yards while ranking second in scoring offense with 31.3 points per game. As indicated by their league-leading 321.8 passing yards per game, quarterback Andrew Luck has been largely responsible for the team’s success.
Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has been the team’s leading receiver, and veteran Reggie Wayne is slowly seeing his role diminish in favor of youngsters such as wide receiver Donte Moncrief and tight end Coby Fleener.
Wayne had one of the worst games of his career against the Cleveland Browns with one catch for five yards and three dropped passes.
The perennial Pro Bowl receiver revealed that he has been playing with a torn triceps injury. However, Wayne has no plans to rest for the playoffs. “If I’m out there playing, I’m good,” the Colts wide receiver told the Indy Star.
Wayne has reached age 36 and is playing his 14th season in the league, so retirement may be on the horizon. His playoff experience will come in handy for the Colts when they inevitably have to face the Denver Broncos or New England Patriots to reach the Super Bowl.
